    What does it mean when the FireWall client isn't installed
    on any computers and the copmuters are getting internet
    access?

  2. Depends on what version of SBS you have.

    Standard version run the RRAS NAT/firewall so it doesn't require
    authentication for outbound access.

    If you have SBS Premium and you installed ISA (and ran the CEICW), then this
    shouldn't happen because it requires auth for web access. Unless you
    configured ISA to allow all users (no auth).

  3. Thank you for posting your question.

    The firewall client is used to redirect winsock requests from applications
    such as Instant messenger, POP3 clients, streaming media, etc to the proxy
    server. Your Internet Explorer clients are most likely confugured to use a
    proxy server and therefore are sending http requests directly to the web
    proxy service of ISA.
